“He [Meade[ shaded the first round, but he came back to the corner telling me his shoulder was very sore” said his coach Eddie Hyland.

“We didn’t know if he had been hit or had over-reached with a shot, but we told him to keep it long range and he did that over the next two rounds.

“His jab was phenomenal and he mixed up every combination. It was just a brilliant performance” he said.
